• linux kernel 4.8.6-1 unavailable but present in arch repository


    Hi,
    I eventually installed manually linux-4.8.6-1 but I am afraid I broke something with updates / something is wrong.

    > sudo pacman -S linux                                                                                                                                                                                                                      !6272

    sudo pacman -Syyu < wants to downgrade

    Obviously correct version (4.8.6-1) is present in repositories: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/linux/

    I don’t think I changed anything but yet here we are :/ I am afraid my kernel might not update automatically when a new version will be available, do you have any idea what to do?

  • Latest doesn’t mean greatest. Antergos (= Arch) offers most recent, well-tested, reliable kernels. Don’t see a reason to not use Arch defaults.

    I’d try to downgrade the kernel to

    $ uname -a
    Linux alexlxm.net 4.8.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Oct 22 18:26:57 CEST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    $ 
    

    with

    sudo pacman -Syyuu

    Sounds like an outdated mirror.

    Look into reflector.
